    Question 04Vectra 1.8 Engine Temperature

    Hi,

    My Car never goes above 40/50 degress Celsius, is that Normal? I can drive for miles and miles and barely reach 80?

    When I turn my A/C on it hits 80-85 and then comes back down again.

    Is my Thermostat gone?

    What should be the operating temperature?

    Thanks

    If its any help mine (05 plate) tends to always hover around the 80-85 mark so it does sound as if something may be wrong with the thermostat.

    My 53 plate 1.8 is usually around the 80 degree mark.
    Your thermostat / regulator could be stuck open.

    Not sure if yours it a vvt engine or not, but on the z18xe's the thermostat was a fairly common fault to stick open.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
